Please accept my sympathy in the loss of Alberta Ballew. None of her family know me, but my maternal Grandmother was Nellie (Fitts) Shelton. She and Fred Fitts were brother and sister. Alberta and I were close when we were children but grew apart as we grew up. I know you will miss her terribly and wish you God's comfort in your sorrow.
